Upshur County Schools Announces Calendar Changes
At its regular meeting held on February 12, 2013, the Upshur County Board of Education approved changes to the remainder of this year’s school calendar as mandated by WV Code 18-4-45. These changes were made due to school closures because of inclement weather, and to allow for the maximum amount of instructional time available.
The following days were originally scheduled as non-instructional days and have now been rescheduled as instructional days as described:
March 11, 2013 Full Instructional Day
March 29, 2013 Full Instructional Day
Friday, May 3, 2013 Full Instructional Day
Friday, May 17, 2013 Instructional Day – Early Dismissal (Strawberry Festival)
Friday, May 24, 2013 Full Instructional Day
Friday, June 7, 2013 Full Instructional Day
Monday, June 10, 2013 Full Instructional Day
Tuesday, June 11, 2013 Full Instructional Day
March 20, 2013 was originally scheduled as an early dismissal day and is now a full instructional day.
Therefore, with these changes, the last full instructional day for students will be June 11, 2013.
What is Destination Graduation?
Destination Graduation is an initiative to increase awareness about the importance of staying in school and earning your diploma. Our goal is for our students to graduate from high school in four years from the time they enter ninth grade.
One in four West Virginia students will not graduate!
Destination Graduation is about relationships. It is about building relationships with each other and our students. It is about treating others the way you want to be treated. It is the sense of togetherness and belonging.
Dropping out of high school is a community problem. By working together, we hope to create an ownership to our student's education, our schools and our community. We hope that you see Destination Graduation plastered all over Upshur County, as a reminder, to everybody that lives here or is passing through, that we believe, that graduation is the destination for all of our students!
